Loading arms

Loading Arms

At EWFM we supply an extensive range of loading arms for filling road or rail tankers.  Our loading arms can be adapted to suit your media; our applications include hydrocarbon, chemical, food and hot products.  They can be supplied for either top filling or bottom filling depending on the requirement.  All are arms are equipped with high quality Swivel Joints that ensures easy and smooth manoeuvrability for the operator.

 

Top Loading Arms

Top loading arms are genuinely used when filling through the Man hole on the top of a road or rail tanker.  At EWFM we supply many configurations; it may be a fixed reach arm designed to fill up one compartment from a single point or a long range variable reach arm that is designed to fill multiple compartments from a single point.

Our Top loading arms can be manufactured in:

  • Aluminium
  • Carbon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Alternative materials on request

In sizes of:

  • 1”
  • 2”
  • 3”
  • 4”
  • 5”
  • 6”
  • 8”

Our top loading arms can also be supplied with numerous optional extras, some of these include:

 

Bottom Loading Arms

Bottom loading arms are generally fitted with an API or dry break coupler that connects to the mating adaptor on the road or rail tanker.  Like our top loading arms, bottom loading arms also come in a wide range of configurations.  Very often they are supplied staggered (like in the picture above).  This allows the arms to overlap and fill multiple compartments at the same time.  These arms are very often distinguished with colour coded hose covers.

Our Bottom loading arms can also be manufactured in:

  • Aluminium
  • Carbon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Alternative materials on request

In sizes of:

  • 1”

Specials

Other than our standard range we also offer arms for those difficult fluids and gases to handle.  Hot products such as bitumen need to be heated in order to keep the media in its liquid state.  We therefore offer arms that can be electrically heated or heat jacketed with hot oil.  We can supply arms with insulation if this is required.

Furthermore we also offer special loading stations and arms designed for LPG.  These include an arm for loading and an arm for vapour recovery.  They are often ordered with a Stand post when the customer hasn’t already got a structure to support them.

We also have a large range of Access systems including folding stairs and gantry stands.  These are used for your operators safety when top filling your road or rail tanker.
